Here’s a throwback for Thursday to the Lehigh Valley Airshow 2013. This was my personal favorite from the show. Just a little backstory. My press pass got me to a really good and close vantage point. So close that with a 70-200mm lens I could get this shot… after several attempts. These fly boys come in so low and fast that you hear no sound… well not too much sound until after they pass. The pre-sound is a “crackling hissing sound” I’m no expert but I’m guessing it is the air splitting around the craft. My Canon 6D is a slow shooter but I still got this shot.

How low was the jet? Look below at the RAW file straight out of camera.
